The adidas event from this past Saturday was so amazing. Not just because it is a chance to try on and run in the new UltraBOOST X running shoe (specifically designed for women), but also because adidas partnered with Girls on the Run. Girls on the Run is a non profit, female empowerment group who’s mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident, using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
As a part of the event, all of us “big girls” got paired up to mentor one of the young girls from GOTR. This was the part I was so excited for! That’s my girl Ofelia in the pink 🙂
We all got styled in adidas and to make the event even more fun, the girls got to get their hair braided at the braid bar.
adidas set up different stations for us to stop at, as we ran across a 2-mile stretch of the strand in Santa Monica. Each station helped the girls (and us!) just have some fun. Some of the stations included dance moves, yoga poses, and so many more. It’s the little things like being silly and dancing, or trying our hand at yoga that really helps build confidence in girls! It’s ok to be silly, have fun, and let go. 🙂
Check out the whole group here! So many amazing women who all stand for female empowerment, girl power, and raising each other up! Thank you adidas for bringing us all together for an amazing event.
